The now Commissioners of tiie County Court House-State Senator Xortoii, Alderman Coman, jnme«; H. fngerso/I aud John J.

Humors had uaia. circulated throunhoiit. the citjr tltat. alt was not gains' well with the craft, and a certain manufacturer was accused of taking steps hazardous to the well-being of this ancient and industrious order of knights. The mission of the reporter was to learn whether there was a foundation for thin rumor or not. He met a shoemaker, a member the order, and the following colloquy ensued:-- KEPORTEK--Arc you aware of any diillcnlty at present existing between a Mr. Biirt, ;i manufacturer, and any of the shoemakers r the city?

However, sir, if you would see Mr. Ryan, the Sir Knight of the Order of St. Crispin, ho could undoubtedly give you information of any such a strike should there bo one in contemplation. As the head of our organization he is posted upon anything of the kind whicii would be likely to come off. It may be as well to stare here for the benefit the uninitiated that "team" men are those -who work for manufacturers, and are never engaged upon more than one portion of the work.
